L&L Hawaiian Barbecue will hold a grand opening for its newest San Antonio-area restaurant Saturday, Oct. 29, serving up frosty Dole whips and burgers with a ramen “bun.”

The West Side location, 6934 W. Military Drive, is the chain's third store in the San Antonio area, joining a flagship location on Austin Highway and a New Braunfels satellite. The latter opened its doors earlier this spring.

The Honolulu-based chain operates more than 200 outlets across the country, serving Hawaiian specialities such as Spam musubi, loco loco and barbecue chicken bowls.

The new location, situated one mile from Lackland Air Force Base’s Luke Gate and Visitor Center, will offer military discounts and Aloha Friday entertainment, company officials said.

After this weekend's grand opening — Oct. 29 at 11 a.m. — the restaurant will be open 11 a.m.-8 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Friday and Saturday. It will close daily for a 3 p.m.-3:45 p.m. team break.
